It was definitely a double edged sword for the band, for the first time in a long time they were financially above water . And, outsiders for not, it must have nice to get a little respect . It was nice when they could sell enough seats that they could do 3 night instead of 1 , that was tripple the fun for me ! But it did bring all the problems stated in the other posts . The problems that beset the bigger shows, were not unique to the Dead, note all the recency complaining about rude/noisy/stupid crowd behavior , So some of it , I think, had to do with the "Mega-Dead" period, ( and the popular conception :Grateful Dead = excess , translated "let's get as trashed as we can, and by the way , fuck you " ) and part of it is social devolution .
